Situated between the municipal districts of La Morra and Barolo, Cerequio is considered one the most prestigious crus of Barolo. A magnificent amphitheater of vineyards where the soils, exposure and microclimate come together to create exceptional Barolos. Choicest position, as described in 1880 by Lorenzo Fantini, author of the first monography about viticulture in the province of Cuneo, it was included among the Top Category crus by Renato Ratti, in the celebrated Mappa del Barolo published in 1965, the basis of today’s classification in MGA, or Additional Geographical Definitions, which designates this area as having “absolute prestige.

Tasting Note
Bright garnet with light orange hues. Rich and powerful at first, but extremely elegant with a texture of silky, enveloping tannins; great harmony and long-tasting flavour. On the nose, the wine is complex and intense with great charm, with balsamic notes, violet, small black fruits, turffle and fine spices.
Food Pairing
Pairs well with tagliolini with d’Alba truffle, stew, risotto with Barolo, well-matured cheeses.

About the Grape

Nebbiolo
Young Nebbiolo can be tough, acidic and tannic; but mature, its blackberry and wild cherry flavors and aromas develop complex and sublime violet, rose petal, truffle and tar notes.
